McCrew….I am, in fact, Lovin it

I am an 18 year old College Freshman and McDonald’s is my first job I have held (other than volunteer work type jobs)..

I have worked at McDonald’s for around 6 months now and I have barely any reason to hate it. Sure I experience the bad customers, rude co-workers, ego trip managers and all of that, but I keep my professional composure and get over it all quickly.

The management at my store (which is in Indiana) is great! All of them have an almost different way of running things, and some are better than others at times, but over all they are wonderful. One of the best things is that they are always willing to lend a hand to a crew person in need.

Since being hired I have been named Employee of the month once, and been given numerous citations and congratulations for my work. I am even due to be promoted to Crew Trainer before this month is over. Bout time I think on that one as I have been training crew since my 2′nd week there. Yeah they got me on it right off the bat.

About the rude customers. I always find it good to laugh at them when they leave the counter or window. Don’t let them get to you. There is always going to be an asshole or two that thinks they own you because you are there to serv them..But (at least at my store) for every asshole that comes through there are 10 cool people that come through. It is always great to have them there and they make your day so much better. Especially the “regulars” that are there either every day or every other day…

I do plan on being with McDonald’s throughout my college career, and maybe for some time after it. Who knows, maybe I will end up working there for years to come, but I don’t think I want to be there my whole life. Great job and everything and I know there is money to be made there at McD’s but I just don’t see myself making it a lifetime career. As I’m sure most people that are in that situation, at first, didn’t see themselves like that either.

Well I am just going to go along for the ride and see where it takes me. Call me a moron, make fun of me, I don’t care too much. I will probably just laugh at you and shake it off. HAHA!
